Carbon

PET is committed to the Paris Agreement to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.

To achieve this PET is engaging the whole community in becoming Net Zero, which means not contributing to global carbon emissions.

Carbon Calculation

If you want to reduce your carbon footprint the first step is to know what causes emissions in your lifestyle.

Through a partnership with Carbon Footprint Ltd PET has access to a carbon calculation tool. In this easy-to-use web-based tool you can calculate your carbon footprint from flying, driving and all other means of transport, household, food, electronic equipment and other emissions. We suggest you use this information as a starting point for taking steps (unless you already do).

Carbon Offsetting

When you know what your carbon emissions are you have the necessary information to start reducing them. You can also take responsibility for the emissions you have not yet managed to reduce by offsetting them.

On the website where you calculate your emissions you can select one of PET’s various high quality offsetting projects. They all fulfil the requirements of additionality, permanence and transparency and follow international standards such as Gold Standard or VER.

They are all located in developing countries and, in addition to carbon reduction, they also provide social and economic benefits to local communities such as improved environment, health benefits, biodiversity, reduced deforestation
